What space in your house to choose
One of the first things you’re going to want to think about in terms of how to set up a projector is what room you’re going to put it in. You want to make sure that you’ve picked the best room possible in order to have the best movie viewing experience!
Our top suggestions are rooms that feature big expansive wall space that isn’t hindered with artwork or photos. For a lot of people, they can usually find the space for an HD projector in their living room. After all, it’s usually where you lay on the couch and watch movies anyway. If not in the living room, if you can get cozy in the basement, there is usually lots of free wall space down there. Simply get all your pillows and blankets together and make a fort with the kids!
Lastly, another good room for your HD projector could be a bedroom. A lot of people like to keep their master bedrooms fairly minimal. So, if you have space on the wall opposite to your bed, how great does that sound? Cozy blankets, snacks and your own personal movie theater right the comfort of your own bed!
How to set up a projector: interior paint
In terms of interior paint choices for your HD projector, you’re going to want your walls to be as white as possible. If you’re looking to set up your projector in your living room, but the wall is painted a burgundy, that just doesn’t work in terms of interior paint. Think of your walls as the movie screen! They just need to be white, right?
If you’re really dedicated to this idea and need to do some interior painting prior to setting up, you’re going to want to choose the best white paint. Benjamin Moore’s Chantilly Lace is the ideal choice. It’s crisp and fresh and clean looking. You can also opt for an off-white for your movie projector wall as well. In that case, Pure White is a good choice for interior paint. It’s still in that white world, but slightly dusty.
